Ryan Viselli looked on the line board in the Penticton Vees dressing room and found his name in an unfamiliar spot.

Ryan Viselli looked on the line board in the Penticton Vees dressing room and found his name in an unfamiliar spot.

The second-year Vee found himself playing with rookie Beau Bennett and Denver Manderson. In Game 1 on the Vees’ first round series with the Merritt Centennials, Viselli collected a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win. In Game 3, he added another goal as the Vees won 6-1 and took a strangle hold on the series with a 3-0 lead with Game 4 going Tuesday night in Merritt.

Not surprisingly, Viselli enjoyed playing with his new linemates.
